Schedule[edit]

  • We'll offer training only if new people come who need it.
  • Our plan is to review sets of pages on English Wikipedia that refer to the whitehouse.gov site and see if the links work right, and if not to make a wise substitution.
  • We also would like to understand why different searches are giving different numbers of such links.

FAQ[edit]

  • Do I have to be a Wikipedia editor already? No, this event is open to everyone, even beginners.
  • What happens if I get hungry? We'll have food! Details TBD.
  • What should I bring? A laptop computer
  • Can I leave early? Sure! we won't lock anyone in. You can walk from this building to the National Mall or to a restaurant
  • How can I access the GWU wireless network?
  • It takes a few steps and minutes to get a WiFi login:
  • Connect to the WiFi (SSID) network called GWconnect.

  • Select 'Need an account? Click Here'
  • You're a "guest" and you'll have to give a name, email address, and/or mobile number. Accept the GWU wireless terms of use and click Register to submit.

To do's[edit]

  • update Whitehouse.gov article for new administration
